Mini Pom Pom Slippers Crochet Pattern
It’s about the small little luxuries that make our day special. For me, one of these little luxuries is a good pair of pom pom slippers. Crochet slippers are even better!
These women’s pom pom slippers are a one size fits all, and are extra comfy. Perfect for curling up and relaxing. They’re worked in single crochet stitch and are made out of a soft acrylic wool blend.
The plymouth encore yarn is worsted weight and durable. Perfect for a pair of slippers you’ll wear every night. They have fun little pom poms stitched across the top of the slippers. It adds a fun punch of color and texture to these otherwise classic slippers.
You deserve a treat and slippers are such a comforting way to treat yourself. They’re also a fast project with fun details. You could even make matching pairs for your friends and have a cozy spa day together.
